Sisterhood After-School Program



The Sisterhood After-School Program serves young ladies that are in the 4th-8th grade in CMSD schools on Cleveland's westside. Sisterhood supports girls and helps them learn the academic and social skills they need to not only stay in school, but succeed academically, maintain high self-esteem, and reach future success. Girls are engaged in the creative and purposeful use of language as a form of self-expression and as a means to enhance critical thinking and literacy. Throughout the school year, girls will participate in a range of cultural, educational, and social programs/activities throughout the school year. The five learning cycles include Social Skills and Self-Esteem, Social Justice, Financial Literacy, STEM, and Health & Wellness.



Learning Cycles

Here are the monthly topics that the girls will be learning in Sisterhood. Each theme was picked to enrich the students in ways to help them continue to grow.


Bringing supplemental science, technology, engineering and math is a great way to show students how they can continue to grow into STEM careers and learn how these subjects can be exciting to learn.


As growing girls in a world that doesn't always make them feel welcomed. We wanted to help build the toolbox of these great young minds to remind them of all the ways they can love themselves. So they can have the power to love the world later.

Health and Wellness

Keeping up with our bodies is important as you age into a young woman! Teaching how to utilize skills like physical education and nutrition to continue to help the Sisterhood girls grow into their best selves.

Social Justice

It is essential to teach our youth about the world around them and how they effect it. The students are learning about feminism, housing disparities, racism, etc.

Financial Literacy

Nemo enim ipsam voluptatem quia voluptas sit aspernatur aut odit aut fugit, sed quia consequuntur magni dolores eos qui ratione voluptatem sequi nesciunt.
